The mouth is home to hundreds of bacterial species with various nutritional preferences. These organisms usually enjoy proteins, and as they digest proteins several fetid substances arise. The role of volatile sulfur compounds (vscs) in producing bacteria that colonize over the tongue was recently understood as a main cause of halitosis (bad breath). The most common vscs, such as methylmercaptan and hydrogen sulfite, can be detected by using organoleptic and objective methods. Treatment includes maintaining good oral hygiene, brush two times a day and gargle with salted water after meals, homoeopathic medicines will give you permanent solution.

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

Calcium is one of your best friends when it comes to preventing tooth decay. This is especially true for growing children and those with dental issues. Dairy products ? be it milk, cheese, or yogurt ? are all good sources of calcium. The best part is, even skimmed milk or low-fat yogurt are as effective.

Other sources include almonds, broccoli, canned fish with bones, Brazil nuts, bok choy, and dried beans.

Fiber in Fruits and Veggies.

I am having slight jaw pain in both sides of my and its shape is not consistent that it changes or enlarges when my face is stressed, its so over whelmi, why does jaw enlarges when there is stress?

MFDS RCPS (Glasgow), MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, BDS

Hi going by your description, I am inclined to think you might have a habit of grinding your teeth, esp. In of stress. This has led to chronic inflammation of the jaw joints, resulting in the pain. Also, due to constant overuse, the jaw closing muscles might have become enlarged, and they enlarge further when in prolonged continuous use, when you are clenching your teeth while under stress. Suggest you try and notice if the clenching of teeth happens at such times. If it does, you need to make a conscious effort not to do so. Sometimes, it might be necessary to fabricate intra oral appliances to protect the teeth. The problem of jaw enlargement may get rectified if the habit is effectively broken. In any case, see an oral surgeon for assessment and necessary intervention.

Pain in teeth can be caused by many things like it can b due to-- 1-dental cavities which are deep enough to expose pulp (nerve) causing its irritation leading to pain and infection, 2- gum problems 3- any trauma to tooth 4- pain due to tmjoint. For better diagnosis and treatment plan visit a dentist for full clinical examination along with xrays. (as without seeing I cannot suggest you proper treatment).

A root canal can be done if the tooth is not shaking and is firm. Saving a tooth is always better than removing it.
